SBM has been a supplier and Service Agent for RICOH product for 35 years.  We specialise in handling the older RICOH copiers, printers and faxes and where parts are obtainable, either new or secondhand, we have technicians experienced in maintaining this type of equipment, who, where it is economically viable and practical, will service or repair your machine .  Should this not be the case, we will fairly assess your equipment and discuss  the validity of repairing it or discuss a possible replacement .

We are also able to supply or source a wide range of toner for both current or older model machines.



Southern Business machines is a small, locally owned, bustling company who because of its independence can be flexible in the extended range of equipment it can service.  We can handle a limited range of older copiers, printers and  faxes such as  Kyocera, Minolta, Panasonic and Fuji Xerox and  shredders of such brands as , Shreddet, Fellowes and Sanyo. Contact us to find out if we can help you.   If parts are needed, available and it is an economically viable repair, our  Service Department will make every effort to fix it.

For any other office equipment that we cannot handle, we can help you find locally, the appropriate Service Agent.


SBM has supplied and serviced for dictation for over 20 years.  Technology is rapidly moving along and the analogue dictation systems have given way to digital machines but experience shows us that there are still may people who favour or are committed to analogue system by requiring new machines or repairs to keep their current ones going.  SBM deals only with the analogue area of dictation equipment. There is still a small range of new Dictaphone, Sanyo, Phillips and Olympus recorders and transcribers available   For servicing, subject to availability of parts, repairs can be carried out by our experienced and creative dictation technician.


SBM has very actively been involved  in the selling and maintenance of Brother typewriters for over twenty five years.  Initially full time a representative was employed to demonstrate and sell these machines. Although the range and need for such equipment has steadily diminished over the years, the repair and need for supplies has remained a viable part of our business.  Our typewriter technician has over 40 years of experience and can attend to any brand including all manual models.

We carry all Brother typing and correction supplies on the premises and equivalent products for other brands can be obtained for most machines with a couple of days notice.
